TYPHOID FEVER WARNING
The Rock Island health department earnestly requests
one to carefully take nrrtlce of the following facts:
1. Tj-phold fever is a communicable but preventable disease.
2. Typhoid fever is contracted solely by the mouth. If you do
not put the germs (poison) of typhoid fever into your mouth, you
win never contract typhoid fever. Therefore, watch the mouth.
3. Do not eat or drink anything (water, milk, oysters, fresh veg
etables or anything else) unless It has been first boiled, broiled,
baked, roasted, fried or otherwise thoroughly heated through and
4. Do without all foods or drink which has not first been thus
heated (canned or bottled foods or drinks other than milk or water)
are not included in this.
5. City water should be boiled at least 20 minutes before us
ing. Continue this and under no circumstances use raw water un
til the mains and reservoirs have been cleaned, the filter plant op
erated permanently and the tests of the filtered water, which will
be published show the water to be safe and pure.
6. If living In the same house with a typhoid fever patient, do
not handle your own food or food intended for any one else,
even if it has been heated, except with hands that have been thor
oughly washed with soap and very hot water (preferably also with
an antiseptic ask your physician about the antiseptic to use). Wash
before every meal in this way and before cooking, serving or eat
ing anything or putting the fingers in the mouth.
7. If there are flies about see that all food and drink is protected
from them at all times. Flies often carry typhoid poison to foods
F. The poison of typhoid fever does not show itself for two
weeks after it enters the body. Therefore, for the next two weeks
typhoid cases may develop from typhoid poison already taken in.
But any such case which develops later than this will be due solely
to neglect of this notice and failure to carry out minutely the di
rections hre given.
5. In homfs havine typhoid fever Irs'St on the proper care and
treatment of the patient's discharges. Thi6 will help to prevent an
other case developing in the same house. Ask your physician about

not less than $1,500, nor more than

For total disability one-half usual
